Huawei Y5P review

Expert review

Unfortunately this phone may not be receiving security updates for much longer - see ‘Should I buy it’ in the full review for more. Huawei’s top-of-the-range smartphones can cost more than £1,000, but it also releases models at the opposite end of the market – including the Y5P, for less than £100. There are some compromises on features to keep the price low, and, like all newer Huawei phones, it’s missing Google services. See if our expert testers think it’s a bargain worth snapping up by reading our full review.

  • Pros and cons
